KMFDM TOUR POSTER (War Bus) As part of their promotional campaign for their upcoming tour, industrial group KMFDM commissioned me to come up with something appropriate. Inspired by WW1 armoured mini tanks and modern anti-riot vehicles, I set about creating a hybrid more suited to the band’s image than the traditional tour bus. After creating […]
In support of the Femen/Pussy Riot protestors, I created a suitably forceful chainsaw-wielding amazon for the front cover of the new KMFDM album, ‘Kunst’. Since their incarceration for various anti-Putin stunts and protests, international support for the women of the movement has grown exponentially, mostly due to their bare-chested style of defiance. (see Femen cross-felling […]
A detail of singer Lucia Cifarelli from KMFDM’s band artwork from a few years back and now available from the BRUTE! blog shop as either a 240gm. photo stock or framed canvas print. Each print is signed by the artist and numbered from a limited edition of 500 (photo stock) and 250 (canvas).
To commemorate the passing of one of the greatest hit men ever to grace the screen, I created this vector illustration of steely ex-cop turned meth dealer muscle, Mike Ehrmantraut, again represssing the urge to blow Walter White’s scheming brains out. He shall be sorely missed. Prints of the Breaking Bad character are available from the […]
For the second of my sportrait series for online gambling site Buddybet, we decided to run a poll on Facebook to find the world’s most popular footballer. Despite heavy competition, David Beckham came out a clear winner and it is in his honor than I created this illustration depicting the moment before he scored that […]
As part of my recent sportraits series, I was commissioned to tackle New Orleans Saints’ receiver Marques Colston in the traditional BRUTE! style. Keep checking the blog for new sportraits in the coming months.
It’s been almost 20 years since I last created a portrait of Tony Montana (Scarface), surely one of the most iconic characters ever to have blasted their way out of a movie screen. Since its less-than prestigious reception in 1983, Brian De Palma’s blazing gangster epic has become even more famous than its illustrious genre […]
As part of my 30-minute Portrait series I decided, once again, to draw a man of senior years and created this vector sketch of Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet Samuel Beckett. Beckett is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century. Strongly influenced by James Joyce, he is considered one of […]
My logo for Canadian band, Texas Blood Money (don’t ask), inspired in part by the iconic RKO film ident. Created in Illustrator. Available as T-shirts from their site soon. Look out for upcoming album and tour dates at their web site here.
Of all the Illustrator artwork I’ve done over the years, this cover for new band Night Surgeon proved to be so intense and complicated that I had to go out and buy a new PC (each brick in the left wall has between 3-6 different layers and the RoBoHo took almost a week to complete). […]
RED DARE – click to enlarge Inspired by Frank Hampson’s Dan Dare comics and the Rev. W. Awdry Thomas the Tank Engine book series, this retro-futurist hover train comes hot off the BRUTE! presses this week. Printed on 200gm. photo stock in blazing scarlet, this gorgeous poster will set your wall on fire (not really). […]

Back when I was working as an art director and writer for Zombie Games in Seattle, I came up with a, for then, revolutionary game concept called Messiah. To play, you set out as a child and worked your way through eight quests, each one leading you further onward to eventually become a wise elder […]
To celebrate International Women’s Day, I wanted to choose an iconic female that would speak volumes about the women in my life and their best qualities: their concern and resolve, their nobility and beauty. PS. I used the lovely Tina Louise (Ginger in Gilligan’s Island) as the basis for BIG RED. The image is available […]

click to enlarge I seem to be working towards becoming the in-house artist for financial giants KPMG these days, with several of my commissions originating from their Prague office. As their top man celebrated his 60th birthday recently, I decided to render a quick artwork which was presented to him this week.
click to enlarge Every once in a while, I get the opportunity to re-render one of my old illustrations. A Drug Against War was one of my first sleeves for KMFDM and when I asked the band for a high-res copy of the sleeve, they were only able to supply me with a heavily-pixellated version. […]
‘Homeland’ artwork click to enlarge In April of this year, I was contacted by a client with an interesting proposition: to create a piece that accurately described his philosophy of the defence of freedom. Conceptual roughs for ‘Homeland’. Over the ensuing weeks and months, and guided by his specific and intricate instructions, I condensed the […]
Pictured is my latest portrait, entitled ‘Night Witch’, with Martina, the model who sat for it. Price: 400 euros plus 60 euros for the printing, framing and glazing (postage extra).

During my long-postponed visit to the UK this month, I came across a number of original artworks. Stored in air-tight folders and packed into a steel chest, items from the early to late 90′s (including a number of animation frames and storyboards from the two animations I did for KMFDM) came to light as well […]
The early 80′s was a tense time. The world seemed on the brink of war, youth unemployment was at an all-time high and strikes and riots were commonplace. To reflect this, I began to write and illustrate a series of strips that attempted to address these concerns. The first copy of RAGE! was sold in […]
Another element from the Tohuvabohu art file.This is the original ink art that was scanned in to complete the album cover. Hand-drawn with brush-pen and rapidograph, this 5”x7” illustration was the definitive final version before I traced it in Illustrator and coloured it. I am now proud to present it for sale, price 275 euros […]
CLICK TO ENLARGE Almost on the final leg(?) of the illustration of Kelly Brook which I started vector-tracing over a week ago in my spare time.I’ve learned a lot by using the gradient mesh and transform mesh tools and my anchor point tweaking has improved tremendously.Its been an experience working this way as my normal […]
